The old version 3 GUI

Recommended Posts

I regret the passing of the version 3 GUI of MBAM. Clarity has been sacrificed in the name of aesthetics.

For me i like the revamped new style more then the older style. This is the problem; Everyone has an personal taste on how things should look or feel.

You NEVER can do good for both party's. That is nearly impossible. Maybe later they change again in a way you like, but one that is not my taste.

I agree Hake, i've always preferred the older style of stuff, but one thing that has been removed which i guess most users don't care about or use, is where the program is currently scan and you can longer at the detections found during the scan. i.e sometimes i would like at that and be able to tell if its good to stop the scan there so i can restart or turn off my pc as systems scans can take 3+ hours then when i restart the scan sci that drive or set of of folders.

You can still do this part. see below you click the highlighted number and you can see the current found items.

Malwarebytes is not designed to function like normal AV scanners and uses a new kind of scan engine that relies mostly on heuristics detection techniques rather than traditional threat signatures.  Malwarebytes is also designed to look in all the locations where malware is known to install itself/hide, so a full or custom scan shouldn't be necessary, especially on any sort of frequent basis (like daily), especially since the default Threat Scan/Quick Scan checks all loading points/startup locations, the registry, all running processes and threads in memory, along with all system folders, program folders and data folders as well as any installed browsers, caches and temp locations.  This also means that if a threat were active from a non-standard location, because Malwarebytes checks all threads and processes in memory, it should still be detected.  The only threat it *might* miss would be a dormant/inactive threat that is not actively running/installed on a secondary drive, however if the threat were executed then Malwarebytes should detect it.  Additionally, whenever a new location is discovered to be used by malware the Malwarebytes Research team adds that location dynamically to the outgoing database updates so the locations that are checked by the default Threat/Quick Scan in Malwarebytes can be changed on the fly by Research without requiring any engine or program version updates/upgrades.

If you need a flat file scanner to check archived data/drives, I would recommend using one of the many available free AV scanners such as Kaspersky's Virus Removal Tool, ESET's Free Virus Scan, or even the built in Windows Defender that ships with Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10.  Links to the first two scanners I mentioned can be found below:

I hope that helps to clarify things and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.

Thanks

It is very true that everyone has their own tastes. Providing the option to switch to an older UI, while it would not be an essential feature, would be welcome for certain folks.

I understand and agree with the desire to keep previous looks on products. I would love to have most of the features of Windows 10 but still run the Windows XP interface, but sadly as with most software the vendors simply don't have time and money to support "skins" like that. All of us using one software application or another have had to move forward with the times and sooner or later adopt the new versions or find another product. Most of the time I typically stay with the product as there is or was a reason I chose it in the first place and often it was not due to just the GUI it was typically the features or similar.
